. that's not nice. john backus is a venture capitalist at new atlantic ventures in d.c. and we did reach out to oracle earlier today for a response on mr. ellison's travel schedule, but we've yet to hear back from the company. john fortt, fill us in on this story. >> well, i think ms. catz has a point here, but maybe the sales team wasn't thrown under the bus. i think they've been in a way under the bus for a while now. it's important to go back, back in june, the head of sales, keith block, left oracle. and one of the stories that i have heard today is i've kind of asked questions around this, is that oracle has still been transitioning the sales force, trying to go from selling mostly database to selling hardware and clad applications as well, and it kind of caught up to them. q4 is the time when the sales team really has to perform, if they're going to hit their annual quota. we really have to see if they show up in this case. i still think, though, they're going to have kinks to work out going forward because they're really trying to sell this suite of products in a whole different w
and elsewhere, the u.s. is trying to prevent one. our chief washington correspondent john harwood has the latest on the possible deficit reduction deal. hi, john. >> it's an interesting blend of confrontation and cooperation. call it a controlled battle because you've got the u.s. senate today taking up a bill to avert a government shutdown by sustaining government funding beyond march 27th. the house has already passed the bill. there are differences between the two chambers and the two parties on what they want to do to the effects of the the bill. it smoothed out some things. made it easier for the pentagon to adjust. the senate has other departments which it's trying to help. still some disagreements there. but they expect to be worked out by the end of the week. at the same time, there's a huge gap between the two long-term budget plans that the two parties are pushing. and john boehner over the weekend said, we're done with tax increases. he was repeating that position. the house white house responded, the senior adviser, saying no deal is possible as long as john boehner is in that place.

. good to see you, guys. >> hello, maria. >> john, what are you expecting from this market the next couple of weeks headed into earnings season? >> well, right now we're kind of going sideways, doing a little bit of consolidation. obviously the cyprus news didn't help too much. but the fact that we were able to absorb fedex news, as well as oracle and bad print detail last night, and nike, actually helped us out last night. but the fact that we were able to go sideways, we haven't really sold off gives the bull some more hope here. >> i like that you're saying that, because i know fedex caught a lot of people by surprise. the transports breaking down caught a lot of people by surprise. and i'm wondering if that tells us anything about the upcoming first quarter reporting season. david sowerby, are you changing your behavior in any way as a result of what we saw in earnings this week? >> no, i'm not. i think the longer term case for stocks is still very much in tact. and more retail and institutional investors will be rotating into stocks. in the very near term, don't be surprised if

a lot of acquisitions. >> well, i think we're the leaders, john, and we have to continue to innovate. but i think, you know, the affinity that marketers have for adobe, we're such an entrenched part of the content life cycle, and so as they're creating these campaigns, we think that's the on-ramp from all of this digital spend. google's actually a partner, because we allow marketers to spend more money on surge, but there is social, there is display, there is video. and i would say that oracle and ibm come at it more from the point of view of i.t. we focused on the marketer, we believe we have the most comprehensive solution. and, you know, we're clearly in the lead. >> i know we're almost out of time, but i notice that you guys also put out a release saying kevin lynch, the chief technology officer, who came over, i believe, from macro media, quite a while back, is leaving the company. what can you say about that and who's going to lead adobe's technical efforts going forward? >> well, kevin's made many contributions, john, and you know, i'm really grateful for that. he's decided th

. cnbc's chief technology reporter john fortt has all the details from the report. >> oracle out with those very disappointing reports. stock was down as much as 8% after hours. here are the gruesome details. misses on the tom top ask bottom lines. wall street was looking for revenue around $9.4 billion. oracle turned in just shy of $9 billion. nonbacked eps of 64 cents. oracle turned in 65. as the revenue pretty much fell across the board, new lifeless and cloud revenue was well light. nongap operating margins, just a little bit light, but still in this. and then the guidance, q4 is oracle's big quarter. this is where wall street was hoping for some blowout numbers, looking for around 11.5 billion in revenue, 88 cents of eps, oracle said, no, we're not going to do quite that well, in fact, guided to just a negative 1 to plus 4% growth in revenue for the quarter. wall street better than 5% growth. new revenue will fall a couple of percentage points short of what wall street wanted and hardware product revenue very much light. the cfo says the problem here is not product, it was s
